Many educators, particularly in the liberal arts colleges of the nation, crave direction in following their best pedagogical instincts of 'breaking out of the box' into which undergraduate learning has been compressed. There are, simply put, supplementary paths to learning beyond the lecture system and beyond scholarly research for publication. In 'To Serve and Learn', attention is paid to service learning as an enhancer of the curriculum and of teaching methodology. It is a welcome demonstration of a 'Both-And' partnership that takes us productively past the old 'Either-Or' suspicions between traditional and experimental techniques and ideologies. The key to civic and moral renewal in this world lies in linking learning through personal commitment with improving public life. (Larry T. McGehee, Wofford College) The spirit of community undergirds the service curriculum included in this readable and stimulating book. All of us who work in liberal education are aware of the burgeoning interests our students are demonstrating in projects that will make them feel as though they can contribute in tangible ways to humanity. The international service-learning programs exemplified here are models of excellence from which we can take heart and upon which we can build our own unique learning and service opportunities for students. (Molly Kayes Ransbury, Associate Dean for International Education and Off-Campus Programs, Eckerd College) Highly recommended for those interested in service learning at the collegiate level. All levels. (G.K. Clabaugh, Choice)
